You can buy single lifters. I have used a hydraulic lifter and taken it apart and filled it up w/small washers to make it solid. Either way, just so the lifter cannot collapse. You can reuse it when you check/set the geometry
0.080" on the intake and 0.100" on the exhaust is considered by many to be a good safe clearance. You will probably find the closest near-miss at the exhaust valve on overlap, when the piston is chasing the exhaust valve back onto its seat.
